Every single module on this list will have some users. To me the 
question is: Are there enough users to justify the extra burden on the 
maintainers, but also users not using that package? (The latter will 
have to download the package, have it installed on their systems, it 
makes it harder to find other things in the documentation etc.) If there 
not many users left, I believe these should either vendor the last 
official package or to band together to maintain the package themselves 
on pypi.
